There's a port test at...

.. that after you click a *continue* button (maybe *proceed*) .. on the
following page, there's a "Shields UP! Services" box part of the way down
the page.  You can click on any of the buttons...

     File Sharing, Common Ports, All Service Ports, Messenger Spam,
     Browser Headers, User Specified Custom Port Probe, or Lookup
     Specific Port Information

.. to find out more information about what port is for what service and
as to whether that port on your machine is open to the world or not or
anything inbetween.

For example... if you click on "All Service Ports" .. it starts to dynamically
probe all of your ports on your host machine and it builds a grid of squares
on the web page in front of you with either green squares, red squares, or
blue squares.  Follow the legend on the page and put your mouse over the
different colored squares and the ALT tag for the images will show you directly
which square you're "mousing over" to show you the status of each and every
port tested.  For "All Service Ports" .. it checks out your first 1056 ports.

If the port you're looking for isn't listed, then you can use the user specified
custom ports to setup a test for a specific range of ports that you might like
to check out as well.
